Tour Overview

Nome, Alaska, situated near the Arctic Circle on the Bering Sea coastline in Alaska’s Far North started life as a ‘wild west’ tent city during the Alaska Gold Rush and still retains some of the ‘period atmosphere’ today. Self-drive visitors can experience the thrill of exploring Alaska’s “last frontier” where gold prospectors can still be seen working sluice boxes on Nome’s beaches. Around the world, Nome is also famous as the finish line for the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, the epic 1,000-mile winter dog sledding race across Alaska from Anchorage. And with round-the-clock daylight during the summer, you can set your own schedule for wildlife viewing and other.

Alaska’s Seward Peninsula where Nome is located is a beautiful sub-arctic region of mountains, tundra, and remote valleys. Alaska birders will find the region rich in rare and unusual species and outdoor enthusiasts will love the nature and pristine environment of this area. Animal lovers may see musk ox (a species left over from prehistoric times), moose, and caribou. You can take an easy drive to the tiny subsistence village of Teller, where the traditional Eskimo way of life still exists. Pilgrim Springs and Council are also fascinating destinations. Alaska’s history is everywhere – old roadhouses and even Wyatt Earp’s original cabin may be found in Dexter. Roads are gravel and well maintained. The hotel on this Nome-Bering Land Bridge tour is comfortable and a perfect base for three nights. Nome has several restaurants, bars, and grocery stores.
